Little Ummah Playgroup has now been running for well over a year. Grimesthorpe Academy recognises how important it is to start early positive nurturing in an Islamic environment.
This is why we are running (perhaps the first ever in Sheffield) Muslim-focused mother, baby and toddler group, every Wednesday, 11am-1pm.
We focus on early stage play, by encouraging Islamically-led play and making it fun. We aim to offer crafts, games, stories, singing and socialising between mums. We also hope mums can feel part of this and contribute to the sessions, with whatever skills and talents they have.
So, whether you like to sing Islamic songs, or do crafts, or even present a bit of “I Can Cook” to the session, it will be very welcome, as this is your group.
We also provide areas for feeding, changing, nap times and snacks. All we ask for is a contribution of £1 and any donations of good quality toys are welcome. Please come along and together we can continue to make ‘Little Ummah’ a success.
